Subject Re: [users@httpd] rewrite rule on apache2 .htaccess file
Date Sun, 21 Jul 2013 08:46:47 GMT

IMHO the first rewrite doesn't match because regex is wrong.

The URL your rewrite should match is something like this:


so your regex should first match the first / character. 
Then, don’t confuse alternation with a character class. If you want express an alternation
you need a group, it means rounded brackets instead of square brackets.

Last but not least, the second rewrite doesn't match the first / too, I suppose it worked
because even if the slash is doubled the PHP code, in some way, will handle it.

Honestly, after all I had no time to test my suggestion, but please try with this:

RewriteRule ^/(css|js|fonts)(/.*)?$ /static$2 [L]
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

Best regards,
